Assuming you are using debhelper, you add a call to dh_install somewhere
in the appropriate install target of your debian/rules. You also have a
file debian/install (or for multiple binary packages created from the
same source package, debian/<package>.install) whose contents look like
this, for instance:
The first entry on each line gives the file to install, relative to the
source directory, and the second entry gives the directory to install it
to (obviously, replace <package> with the name of your binary package).
If you are using a debhelper compat level of 3 or greater, the files
will automatically be marked as conffiles since they are installed to
/etc. For more details, see dh_install(1) and debhelper(7).
